In a city populated by charlatans, poseurs and medical flim flam artists of the highest order, Dr. Lenny is THE genuine real deal. He is a remarkable healer and, more important, a human being who cares about you, your recovery and your ongoing well-being. Plus, he just might have the coolest Doctor’s offices in all the land.
I arrived at his doorstep last July (2013) having crab walked up Broadway from my offices on Union Square, barely able to stand erect and grimacing in anguish at the prospect of forever more looking up to my eleven year old son and thirteen year old daughter from a hunched position – my back had given out and I was in excruciating, persistent agony. In what I would truly describe as miraculous, Dr. Lenny cared for me on a daily basis over the next seven days, slowly but with great confidence bringing me back. I have since that time been almost pain free – something I had not experienced in over ten years – and my weekly visits keep me in fantastic shape.
I have never been to a chiropractor who has the skills, expertise, empathy, and uncanny ability to read the patient so accurately like Dr. Lenny. Truly gifted and talented.
Dr. Lenny is the BEST!!!!!!!!!! I have been to many chiropractors in my life, and Dr. Lenny is incredible.
You see RESULTS from your first appointment. He actually takes a photo -before and after- on your first visit. His technique is the gentlest and yet most effective I have ever experienced. It seems odd, as he manipulates muscles and incorporates muscle testing, etc, but nonetheless, it works.
Also, there are no rules like “you must complete 20 visits until we consider showing you the exercises to do to correct your condition” or any other money making schemes that I have encountered at least in my time… He is honest, and knows his stuff. He has a fantastic, caring bedside manner as well and will take as long as he needs with you.
I travel alot for work and last weekend I was in AWFUL pain in my neck. Dr. Lenny got me right in, and i was so grateful. I figured he would be able to at least lessen the pain. However, the next day, it was totally cured! I couldnt believe it! i could turn my head without pain, nod, and the dull aching pain was gone!!!! nothing short of miraculous. truly.
Thank you Dr. Lenny!!!!

“Lenny is the classic example of what a care giver should be, Human First Doctor Second.
Amongst other complications my nine year old daughter was walking around with her head on her right shoulder. Lenny’s first analysis was this will take a lot of work and time to get back to normal.
Realizing the severity of the situation Lenny despite having scheduled time off for his own medical situation called me and offered to treat my child who was in severe pain.
Needless to say Lenny’s first analysis was completely wrong, his deep concern and his care giving ability resulted in a solution with five visits.
Now we have a happy bouncing playful child again,thanks to a deeply committed care giver.”

If you’re like many of us, you’re absorbed all day….by a screen. Reading, typing, scanning and glancing: these are your primary activities. When your mind is drawn into what is on the screen, you tend to ignore your body. You’re likely to default to a posture dictated by gravity and spinal mechanics. Unfortunately, both of these things can impact your body in ways that lead to one thing… back pain from spinal misalignment.
Everyone responds differently to prolonged sessions at a workstation. Contributing factors include, chair support, and previous spinal injuries. Today, I will focus on seats.
Take a Seat
Piano players sit upright for hours, but you rarely hear about their bad backs. Why? Look what they’re sitting: a firm, flat bench. We can all take a cue from them.
Most office chairs are destructive to spinal health and posture. The biggest culprits being the “high tech” chairs engineered for comfort. The illusion of comfort from soft bucket-style seats is just that, an illusion. You’re supposed to sit on the bones of your pelvis (ischial tuberosities), not sink into the surrounding soft tissue. This throws your spinal support system out of whack. Moreover, the slope of the chairs typically rounds your lumbar spine—where it should curve inward. The result? Forced slouching…leading to eventual discomfort.
You can’t always be mindful of your posture and the task at hand so it is best to get the proper support that naturally prompts you to sit correctly. At my office we provide firm foam supports that angle the spine, restoring the natural spinal curves we have when standing up. We also show you how to sit, stand and sleep for optimal spinal health.

Marlena + Bela at Union Square Spinal Care
When I am out in public, especially in a city like New York, I see a broad variety of humanity.
Nothing is an accident, how we live in our bodies is determined, however this large part done unconsciously.
A lifetime of neglect can be seen everyday when we walk down the street. We come across people with horribly distorted postures, how did they get this way? Some were probably traumatized, but most cases developed slowly on a day by day basis.
Our posture gets distorted from two things:
Bad habits, which we can change as we become conscious of them.
Internal spinal tensions, and subsequent compensations.
How do we know which is which?….duh, start paying attention!
Habits that we can’t seem to easily break, usually have an underlying spinal tension as the cause. Unresolved, the constant response to pull on the spinal system is to change posture to alleviate this disturbance.
The purpose of my chiropractic work is to release those tensions, and help you to gracefully undo those compensations. It will take time as each distortion and the compensations needed will release only when the body can accommodate such change.
The work is the work. So far there are no shortcuts to this natural healing process. There is much we can do to help this positive change along. I educate people in the details of how to sit, stand,and even sleep.
There is no hiding from poor spinal management or it’s consequences.
Here is the joke we tell about ourselves:
Q: How many chiropractors does it take to change a light-bulb?
A: Only one, but it will take thirty visits before it works!
Point being, we are working with a natural system, not overpowering it. So each visit releases stuck tensions, but the body will only accept a certain amount of change. Successive visits allow more change until all the light-bulbs work. The goal isn’t to return to the point the patient experienced before pain set in; rather, to bring the person to deeper place of health than wasn’t on the precipice of collapse. So while you may have thought you were happy before you experienced pain in your body, the causes leading up to it were already in place.
Leaving with a quote from the Buddhist scholar, Nichiren Daishonin:
“Those who spend too long in the toilet, get used to the smell.”
